Backup Your QuickBooks Online Data with Rewind

Jan 30, 2020 | Episodes, Featured App

Creating a backup of your QuickBooks Online file is as important as making a QuickBooks Desktop backup. The only difference is we must utilize an app to help us. 

There are several solutions listed on for backing up your QBO data. A significant recent change is ChronoBooks is discontinuing its service to QuickBooks Online users, unless they subscribe to the QBO Advanced subscription! This is BIG news and very concerning to the many accountants and businesses who regularly back up their data. With so many of us losing an integral part of our technology stack, what can we do? 


First and most importantly, backup your data before February 25th.  Intuit has planned to delete all data from the prior ChronoBooks platform for users of Simple Start, Essentials, or Plus subscriptions on this date. You’ll need to connect another backup app right away to.

The good news?  There is another, and even more robust solution on the marketplace, Rewind.  With Rewind, your financial data can be safely stored, which is essential if you get ever get locked out through your app platform.

Rewind offers features and functionality above and beyond that of its competitors, including ChronoBooks
